The second part shows the jeep from various angles. I’ve also included some images from the video below. (If the video is slow or doesn’t work, go here to download the video).

“Mitsubishi J3 Diesel RHD Military Jeep.

License built by Mitsubishi. 4 Cylinder diesel from the factory. Built for the Japanese army (and others) from the 1950’s until the late 1990’s.

Restoration project. Has sat for a number of years. Complete and original. Rust in the usual Jeep places (footwell). Frame is straight and solid. Motor currently does not run but turns over with compression…. Being a diesel I am sure it would run if you hooked it up to a fuel tank, not had time to mess with it. Parts are available from a number of suppliers. Even has the original Japanese NDTs still on it…….”

“Selling my willys Jeep cj3a! Awesome little Jeep that is in pretty good shape!! Not nearly as rusty or beat up as most I looked at when
I was in the market! Almost all original. Running and driving. The original flat head 4cyl starts
Up and runs good, I haven’t even cleaned the original Carter carb! (Although I’m sure it could use a carb clean and a tune up after sitting for many years) the original gas tank is not rusted out like most. The engine does smoke a bit but is very strong, I think it could be old gas in tank or oil making it smoke. The transmission shifts great and stays in all the gears. Clutch works as it should. Jeep drives straight. Brakes do not work!
Really neat Jeep that would be fun to clean up, I just don’t have time with a few other Jeep projects going on.
No scams.
First come first serve”

More on The New Mexico Jeep Derby’s

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine, Racing, videos • TAGS: , .

The February 1963 issue of Popular Mechanics included an article about the New Mexico Jeep Derby held annually in Truth or Consquences, New Mexico. It’s a great article about the early days of jeep racing. I’ve also included a video of one Derby race, but the quality is poor. Still, in some clips, you can see just how much the co-pilot shifts his body around the jeep.

Model/Prop Jeep Elk Grove, CA $300

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models

This is fun and a reasonable price, too.

replica-jeep1 replica-jeep2 replica-jeep3 replica-jeep4

“This replica Jeep is 3/4 scale model loosely based on an early 40’s Willy’s Jeep. I built it for a prop for kids to play on at Vacation Bible School. The frame and body are wood construction plenty sturdy for kids (and small adults!) to sit in / play on. Tires are made of styrofoam, plastic lids, and irrigation drain pipe. No, it does not roll; it is stationary, although with a some imagination and skill you could modify it. There are headlights and marker lights in front connected to a 12v battery and switch in the dash.

Would love to keep it, but don’t have the space for it. Could be for a kid’s playroom, or maybe a Jeep dealer could use it for a kid space!”
